#3896 - Cheesy Baked Mashed Potatoes

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 TBSP butter
1/2 cup butter (melted)
4lbs. russet potatoes
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
1 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
2 TBSP dry bread crumbs

Use the 1 TBSP butter to grease and coat a 9 x 13 glass baking dish. Peel the potatoes and cut them into bite sized pieces. Place the potato pieces in a pot and cover them with water (adding 1 tsp. salt to the water). Bring to a boil, then cook until potato pieces are very tender. Drain the potato pieces. In a large bowl add the drained potato pieces--mash them with a potato masher. Add the milk and melted butter--mash well. Add all of the mozzarella cheese and 3/4 cup of the grated Parmesan cheese--mix well. Add salt/pepper to your taste--mix well. Spread the mashed potatoes into the buttered baking dish. In a bowl add 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese and all of the bread crumbs--stir to mix. Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture evenly over the top. Bake UNcovered at 400 degrees 30-35 minutes or until heated through and topping is golden brown.
